5:18 pm
glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here now. warm up is welcome for a lot of people. >> with the snow on the ground and more wind, temperatures could really plunge. just over the next couple hours. so a couple hours ago, don't dress for that. dress for about 10 degrees colder than that. it also means things are going to freeze back up. 1 degree in philadelphia. down to near 40 across much of the rest of the area. but we'll take a look at some of the outlying areas. fleetwood at 37. white hall at 41.
5:19 pm

5:20 pm
increases. you start getting some significant rain. thursday night, some heavy rain on friday. temperatures just keep going up and up and up. but we get wave after wave of rain on friday. then there's another set of moisture that's going to come in on friday night and saturday. so look at the temperatures go up tomorrow. 43. friday, 60. a low temperature of 50. a low temperature of 50 friday morning. same story across the pa suburbs. remember just how cold it's going to be tonight and by thursday night and friday morning, much, much warmer. but everybody is getting a good bit of rain on friday. and we're also going to see it into saturday. here's friday night. we have that other batch of rain. but it does look like even if you start off wet on saturday, drier air starts coming in and
5:21 pm
it's a good thing the eagles game is late in the day because you can see this computer model is wet even perhaps early afternoon. so it's going to be a fairly close call to get rid of this moisture. so if you're tailgating at 1:00, you might see the end of the rain. but it's going to be wet and start feeling breezy. then the temperature is going down as we go through the game. by theened of the game, it's 39 degrees and with the 15 to 25-mile-per-hour wind, it's maybe feeling like the 20s. in the morning it's going to be in the 50s. so what a change during the game itself. and the wind that is bringing that cold air in could potentially affect the kicking game. that's my main concern there. you can see the temperatures going up. falling temperatures on
